Plan your day as it happens
The Emergent Task Planner (or ETP) is a Daily Planning Sheet that provides a way for you to lightly structure your day. By helping you visualize the time you have, you can get a sense of just how much work you can get done done. The ETP borrows some of the task planning methodology from the Task Progress Tracker to reinforce one idea: it’s hard to get anything done on purpose when there are so many distractions. The ETP provides space for noting down the unexpected while keeping your big-picture tasks in view.
The 2010 edition is based on last year’s pre-printed pad design, which is now available on Amazon.com for ordering. The free downloadable versions are available in black and white, blue, and green, in both US Letter (8.5×11) and International A4 sizes.
If you have any other form variation requests or miss an older version, let me know and I’ll dig it up for you.

Note: For some reason, some Macs have trouble displaying the colors, but they will print correctly. If you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed, I think the issue goes away.
